When I first read the challenge I really had to put my thinking cap on...I had to somehow figure out how to combine Clean with Distressed....When I think of distressed I often think of a certain kind of image of old...I had recently made a card using this stamp and thought it fit the bill... but in this case I cut off most of the image to give it a more simple look or it would have taken up the whole card front...This is my first time distressing and I didnt have a tool so I just used my scissors I distressed on the kraft edges and then tore the black cardstock on the bottom and layered it to give a clean new look I put it all on white...It was fun! I will have to try this again! I stamped out the butterfly on blue cardstock to keep it more simple so I wouldnt have to color and then cut it out and popped it up...The only embellishment on this is a black brad the I added to the center of the watch....Thanks Jen this was a GREAT challenge! It really made me think! TFL!
